Kenyan resident in USA nominated for a prestigious award
We are pleased to announce that Ms. Karen Gitau has been nominated to receive an Award during the 6th Annual Cobb County Community Service Awards hosted by Commissioner Bob Weatherford (Venue and date to be announced later). The annual awards ceremony celebrates individuals and organizations that make a difference to other people’s lives within Cobb County.
Karen Gitau’s nomination was based on the following voluntarily services that she performs on a regular basis:
Global Media Outreach: For the past 6 years, Karen has dedicated an average of an hour a day helping people find their path to Christianity as well as helping people in overcome difficult situations such as abusive relationship, suicidal thoughts; controlled substance abuse, alcoholism and the list goes on.
Mt Paran Church: For the past 3 years, Karen has volunteered as a Sunday school teacher to kindergarten age kids. She has also voluntary worked as a Special Needs teacher to kids with autism and down-syndrome.
As a business owner, Karen has supported the Must Ministries; Goodwill and Salvation Army by supplying the Kennesaw (Cobb County) stores with an average 3% of her business inventory. This enables those who cannot afford to pay full price on certain items, to buy them at these organizations at a drastically reduced price.
Karen is also the author of a book that is centered around helping individuals she encountered while going about her regular day. Most of the stories in her book are about people who reside in Cobb County. The inspiring yet hilarious book is titled: The kid, The Single Mom and the Crazy Community by Karen Gitau and can be found on Amazon.
Congratulations Ms Karen Gitau and good luck at the Awards Night
